Reading in San Francisco

I’m going to be doing a reading at SF in SF on Feb 23 along with Carter Scholz. We’ll be reading and doing a Q&A with Terry Bisson and then hanging around and chatting. If you’re in the area, you should come. It’ll be fun. Here’s the info from SF in SF’s flyer:


Saturday, February 23rd

Lounge /cash bar opens at 6:00 PM
7:00 PM readings

Each author will read a selection from their work
followed by Q&A moderated by author Terry Bisson.

THE up-and-coming writer. A Hugo & Nebula nominee, Paolo Bacigalupi’s debut collection PUMP SIX AND OTHER STORIES from Nightshade Books demonstrates the power and reach of the science fiction short story. Social criticism, political parable, and environmental advocacy lie at the center of Paolo’s work. Immensely interesting and readable, his work will grab you from the outset. Come join us for his only San Francisco appearance. Visit his website at http://windupstories.com/

Carter Scholz’ wonderfully charming, playful, stylish and often experimental writings have been compared to the works of Thomas Pynchon, John Updike, and Thomas M. Disch. Carter Scholz has been publishing novels and short stories for 30 years. He is the author of the critically-acclaimed novel Radiance and the co-author of Palimpsest and (with Jonathan Lethem) Kafka Americana. His terrific short stories has been collected in The Amount to Carry. When not writing, Carter composes experimental computer music, and is a member of the Frog Peak Composers Collective.

Authors will schmooze and sign books afterwards.

  1. Sadness — I will be in SF from the 17th-22nd for the Game Developers Conference, but leaving Friday afternoon for San Diego. :( Hope the reading is fun, though!

  2. Sir:

    We shall be there and then two days later shall re-expatriate.

    Dinner, aforehand?

    -Daniel and Kelly

  3. ZOMG! I’m going to be in the City on the 23rd for the Chinese New Year parade (yes, it’s a parade 3 weeks late, but whatever). I’m totally dragging my best friend to this. See you there ;)
